White Men Begged 
Daily To Make

According to the expectation of War 
om'eiedsii over 200,000 Negroes will be 
drafted In this country without even 
having an opportunity to volunteer. . The 
loyalty of the Negro has never been

. this weak between some genltenien eOn-

expressed that the Nfewri. glens, of all 
American fcitiieos. haiPrieen denied the 
opportunity of having hia patriotism 
tested through the volunteer system, as 
. did other patriot* of the country. The 
limited chance ho baa woa practically 
. nil, and those few men needed to fill 
regiments and raise battalions to'regi-' 
' mental strength were forthcoming; 
while ens nbw,.the door of opportunity 
is open to all bat the Aegro, to, of their 
own free Will, offer.- their lire* for the 
defease of their country! Negroes 
would have welcomed an invitation for 
volunteers is unlimited , numbers, and

would have volunteered, will face dan- 
ger at the sound of the tocsin aa a,ulek- 
iy os any other, whether his desire to 
volunteer was withheld from him, er, 
in his own estimation, he may ha mere-

New Ydrk, N. Y.— "I kpow of no 
law that precludes 'the- Negro citiiitii 
from enliiting- in the Marine Corpa or 
the artillery or any other brsBch, other 
than that unwritten Isw laid down by 
militarists in the United rjtatei of the. 
fJcrman itripe." 

This .asntenco is taken from a letter 
written by Robert Lewis Waring, of 
this city to President Wilson, urging, 
on behalf of the- 12,000,000 Negroes in 
thia country, thst he remove * B ™- 
stri'ctions" that prevent them from en- 
listing in any brsneh-of the military 
sejtvie'e. Mr.- Waring. believes that the 
President, sa eomnUiider- in- chief of the 
nation's military forces, bas'tho right. 
In. time of wsr, to «.j*» all branches 
of that 'service to?*lI*a^rican citieone.

Mr. Wariag, '.'that tho Twenty-fourth

ST. LOUIS TIMES ENDORSES LYNCHING. • 

In an editorial of the St. Louis Timea, an afternoon paper pub- 
lished in this city, last Tuesday 'the editor succeeded in getting out 
of his system an endorsement of the greatest of crimes; the lynch- 
ing by burning, torturing and dissecting of human beings near 
Memphis, Tenn., recently. 

It seems that the writer had treasured the idea of approving 
the actions of the mob in the Memphis case every since it happened, 
but lacked .the moral courage to do so. Now that the kidnapping 
and murdering of Baby Keet of Springfield and the subsequent 
aeiajng, torturing by mob, some of the members of the alleged gang 
of kidnappers, %\it Times seized the opportunity to express its ap- 
proval of .the horrible lynching of a Negro, near'Memphis, some 
weeks ago. ' .... 

After having said in this editorial that mobs are true to human 
nature, and how the mob spirit may seize upon those who are the 
respecters of the law. The Times continues, "In neither the Ten- 
nessee nor the Missouri case will the members or the leaders of 
the moblpe arranged by law. ' Tbey represented public feeling, and 
that "Sentiment stiH effectually, indorses and upholds them. At the 
bottom of things, they represented justice, if not law. No one dis T 
passionately defendVlynching, and in cool blood all of us theoretic- 
ally denounce mob violence. But it will not be asserted, that the 
Memphis and Springfield mobs did not act as the agents of public 
opinion, or that the outraged' instincts whit h their deeds reflected 
were not secretly those of an overwhelming majority." 

(.'''Just why the Negro had to be brought into this. kidnapping 
case, leaves room for much thought. Does the editor of The Times 
think because a Lynching Bee , wis organized,- at Springfield -that 
the Negro, should be" the victim; and in order to make the story 
popular, the Memphis case" should be mentioned? ia it possible 
that the editor of The" Times is not above the level of the common 
mob? If mob violence is popular- among the masses, is the editor 
of The Timea a man who runs and howls with the crowd because 
it-is easy? We dispise mdb violence in any forni, particularly so, 
because the Negro race is the principal victim of the cowardly 
crowd that always seeks' to strike and hide its hands behind the 
numbers! *. -.'.,. .,-'■ 

., He who condones the mob spirit- ia "sowing to. the wind." 



MAYOR KIEL BACK TO HIS 
.' OFFICE, * ■ : 

It is quite gratifying to St. 
Louiaans to see Mayor Keil bafck 
again at the , helm, in the City 
Hall. Not, perhaps, because 
things have gone particularly 
wrong during his brief absence, 
but'because of the large respon- 
sibility which rests upon his 
shoulders. 

There was much apprehension 
on the part of the colored popu- 
lation of this city as to the ulti- 
mate out come of .the Mayor's ill- 
ness after it was reported that 
he had suffered a severe attack. 

Now that he is hack on the job 
with the reins of. the city (| offici- 
ally-in his hands. The Argus on 
behalf of his -many 
friends among the colored 
people of St. Louis, congratulates 
him upon his return to office and 
the splendid condition of his 
health. \ '

On the same afternoon The St. Louis Star in an editorial took 
the only wise and sensible view with reference to the 1 rn/b. After 
telling of the .rope around the neck of one of the alleged kidnap- 
pers, and the more- than "third degree" methods used in an effort 
to extort a confession of guilt from, one of their victims. The Star 
continues, "The horrors and infamy of the police third degree have 
often' been condemned, but here was a third degree beyond any- 
thing the-police of tany city have everdope. This, man was sur- 
rourided.by angry, shouting men, he was beaten In the face with 
the- noose of the rope brought with which to- hang him. He was 
buffeted and pulled' about and lied to and finally actually choked 
with the noose until black in the fact^in the effort to terrorise -him 
into confession. • . ' -V. ■ 

It is probable that four out of Jive innocent. men under such 
treatment would have said.dr^done something* to deepen the belief 
in their guilt and would have been strung up to die. This was the 



defended the statement that N*. | 
gro troopers saved the Colonel 
and hts Rough Riders at San Juan 
Hill. We have always beard that 
politics make strange bed fel- 
lows.

is against the truth of admission^ made und^r torture and -in a 
state of fear or nervous collapse. It was a brutal deed, not justi- 
fied even if the victim had been guilty. What possible justification 
ia there for such treatment of an innocent man, even -though not 
free from criminal-taint?" .' ' , , • - ■ , .,,.,,., 

. The- above statement coming from' the S.t f^uia Star is quite a 'pan in tbeae 
cemtrast to that coming from The Tiinps. It showa the difference 
in the character of the two -editors. Let the thinking public be 
the judge. ' ' -- .'";'. 

As The Star has ao eloquently said,- "Four ou£ of five, innocent 
men would' have made some kind of confession under the circum- 
slancesi and as we look o'er the catalogue of lynching: and read the 
stories of alleged confessions of- the victims and as the pictures 
come . into our minds of the dual position, in which' the accused ia 
placed; and -knowing 'as .we do that so few men have the iron nerve 
to die rather. than change; we stand aghast to think that an editor 
'of a metropolitan' daily like The St, Louis times ia-not able to 
that; mob violence is dangerous at every stage iii the game. 



BETWEEN TWO FIRES. 

Several men have confessed fraud. in connection with obtaining 
life insurance at i better rates, by understating their agea. Now 
they are trying to dodge the draft registration by oyer rating their 
ages. Thus, they have found themselves betWen two'fires. ■■ The 
Government at one-and and the Insurance Co.; at the other. Hon- 
esty is the best policy after all.

THE WORLD PASSES

There are a great many reasons why 
I go to the motion picture show. To 
begin with, I can. sit at ease In a 
comfortable seat and see before my 
eyes the whole great world pass in re- 



ca; the; explorer battling against the 
might of ice and snow, the Arab oh the 
burning sands of the Sahara, the mighty 
trees of California, .the black-skinned 
natives of the tropica gathering cocoa- 
nuts and fruits, the beasts of ' every 
jungle and forest and plain, the flab of 
all the water's of the world, the marvels 
af nature, the wondera of savagery and 
civilization. ! . 

Igo to the motion picture shew be- 
cause, as a common man, 1 can leant 
more of science, than from the reading 
of countless booSts, or by. months of 
travel, or from courses of lectures de- 
livered by whiskered aavanti .whose 
teehnicalitie* confuse lather than 
form. All of tbWean he seen at the

Unlikely Plac* for Conversion. 
A cross was an unlikely place for 
conversion. Tbe cross bas been glori-

to those who first -saw It than a gal-

LESSON FOR JUKE 17 

THE RISEN LORD. 

LESSON TEXT-Joaa 30:Mt. ' 
GOLDEN TKXT-Buc now la - Christ 
risen from the dead, and btMnu the Drat 
fruits of tham that slept- 1 Cor. KrM. 

The death of Christ made 'a deep 
impression upon the .beholders (Luke 
Si:iS.4B). Joseph, who. keema to have 
been a secret disciple, obtained the 
body, and gave It burial (Mark ISr 
■12-47). In Murk's record we have the 
story ot the discovery of the resurrec- 
tion by the women, and Matthew tells 
us iiiiw his t-iii'iuirx dealt) with that 

fnct. Be sure 16 use a good hnnuony 
of Ihe four gospels In presenting nil 
of these -lessons, else, some Important 
detail. will be overlooked. 

I. Marys Visit to .tha Torn* (vv.l- 
.10). The Sabbath ended nt sundown. 
and Ihe sbops wore -then open, nnd 
Mnry Magdalene was able to purchase 
spices with which to anoint tha dead 
body of Jesus. There Is strung prob- 
ability that the Women paid a visit 
to the tomb late on Saturday (Matt, 
3B:1, It. v.). Starting the next morn- 
ing, "while It wos yet dark" (v. 1), 
they came lo the tomb to perform this 
Itisi service at love. Jesus had no- 
need of such service (Mutt. 10:27; 20: 
10). hut the women were rewarded by 
receiving the first glimpse of the risen 
Lord. There were five appearances on 
this first day of the week : (1) to Mary 
HBgdalene. (2) to the "other women," 
(3) to Peter; (4) to those on tha way 
to Enimntis. nnd (5) to the ten dis- 
ciples. Thomas being absent. 

None tit these seemed to expect Je- 
sus to be risen, for they hod Wtch 
failed to listen to and. ponder his 
wonts. Thp client and genuineness of 
the affection of the women is found In 
that' they went to serve Jesus when 
apparently all hope had failed (I Cor. 
13:8, It. V.). As soon as Mary raw 
the stone rolled away, she concluded, 
that the tomb had been rifled, and 
haslcnei! in report to tbe disciples 
(v. 2). This report of th» women to 
the disciples was .considered "as Idle 
tales" (Luke 24:11). . With Intense 
cngerness Peter and John ran to tbe 
tomb thus reported an being robbed. 
John, the yoonglr, reached the tomb 
first., but In reverence did not enter, 
only stooping to. look In (rv. 4. 8). 
Peter, the Impetuous one. .rushes In- 
side, and sees tbe linen clothes lying, 
and the. napkin that had been about 
the/nentl carefully folded and lying In 
fjpni'-e by Itself (v. 7). This; appar- 
■*ntly Insignificant detail Is one which 
la .really ■'significant, inasmuch ai 
shows that the.tomh had not been 
rifled, leaving disorder' behind. 
atead of excitedly snatching the nap- 
kin from his face: and hurling It 
whither It might fall, tin had nyictly 
taken It off.' nnd |n an orderly way 
laid It aside. It la In such minute de- 
tails as this that we see- Ihe greatest 
•tldeoce of the veracity of this rec- 
ord. 

II. Miry WaaolnflftvVll-iri)., T»e 
disciples returned to their own jho 
and douhtlrsH tn the other disciples 
(v. 10). hiit the loving Mary nt-mulned 
behind In this place made snered as 
having Imtised the body of the Lord. 
It Is natural Tor us to linger In'Mlent 
meditation In places of uur Jjpfeteat 
revelation or of our deejieat soul ex- 
perience, Jesus had told his disciples 
over and over again that hr sftutlld rise 
sgaln. nnd It seems stjange that his 
enemies should have remembered. It 
(Mi|tt. 2T-OS)' and hh friend* not. 

III. Mary Worehlblng (w. tn-18). 
There initsr have been ail Inflection In 
the voice of Jes'us, for. upon the utter- 
ance of that one word. "Mary."- she 
recognised her risen l»rd. Joyfully 
she exclaimed. "Rnbhonl." that Is tn 
say. "Master" (v. 1(1). and' wniild have 
pourvd out her love" and worship at 
his feet. Jesus, however, floes not suf- 
fer her to. holAjdra fast. Mary must 
leave him. and tell the others. Liter- 
ally.-he says. To not lay bold At*0H> 
but an and- make known this glad truth 
that I am rtieB a.gnin." The ripen I-nrd 
must return to "My Father" and 'iJIy 
God/" .whereas-'. the one who would 
gladly, have remained at his feet must 
go to the brethren, and make known 
the fans nf the fotftllment of prophecy 
and the restirreotton rfnur Least " 

'The bribed soldiers spread abroad 
the tnle i hi:-; the dlsciplen had stolen 
his body. ' The later JKes bt thew. dl's- 
dptes. their, heroism and martyrdom. 
lire pvtdence of the "absurdity of any 
such set on their part. 

The resurrection of Jesus Is a vln:. 
dlcatton or hr* claim to being the Ron 
of GOd. We drt well to emphasize his 
birth, and, tn dwell/ntncfi Often hli/ 
deathgdE both Of these have no es- 
Senta^^pnue .apnrl from his resurrec- 
tion. . /\ ■ 

Apart, from thjjt the cross Is the end 
of a fiiSluic. The restirrrCtloQ dem- 
onstrated that JestajChrlst'srederap^ 
Hon was not completed upon the cross. 
The resurrection Is IjtttH (uthentJcai;- 
•d than any other event In history. 

The ri-.,d Lord CeBed this" weak 
band of dlsdplea. "my brethren" 
(Mm 3$ :10). He la oar brother stHl. 
end- w.e are lo proclaim hi.-, work- of 
redemption, the proof of ' which Is the 
resorrefllorj, unto others who know It 
not, for this 'tory'la no fiction, it is 
the wnrliTs most tremendoaa aad awe
